Iowa* and New Hampshire, now on the board!

Maybe by then Biden will have been put out to pasture, Buttigieg exposed as a rodent in a man suit fraud, Warren will run for VP, and if we're lucky we may have as much as 93% of the (dubiously tallied) Iowa results.

Join Portland DSA and your fellow comrades to see how much speaking time Bloomberg's money can buy, how many times Bernie is pressed over something hella cool he said in the 70s, and how many questions MSNBC can squeeze in about Russian twitter accounts or obscure Ukrainian ambassadorial aids. Despite it all, Bernie remains unstoppable, crushing the competition in nonwhite and young voters, and maintaining a healthy lead in several upcoming states. Show up to support the working class champion!

We will have Bernie/DSA gear and literature available, please take a look!
